random_page_cost should be set with the following things taken into

  - seek speed


Which is not exactly the same thing as spindle speed as it's a combination of spindle speed and track-to-track speed. I think you'll find that a 15K rpm disk, whilst it will probably have a lower seek time than a 10K rpm disk, won't have a proportionately (i.e., 2/3rds) lower seek time.


- likelihood of page to be cached in memory by the kernel

That's effective cache size.
